Old lathe

I have a house built in 1908. It has the old lathe and boards.
Part of the ceiling (maybe 3x5) is coming loose. On one of your shows, you had use system\screws(?) to secure the lathing. At the time, these system\screws were not available anywhere. Where can I find some?
I think I may have to replace the section; it appears that it is coming down between the rafters. Unsure it trying to secure it would work.

Thanks,

Instead of using screws and washers go to www.bigwallys.us and look at their adhesive system for reattaching plaster. If you have any other questions I'd be happy to answer them.
